The people of Saint-Lambert appreciate and value the arts and culture, which is why the City is paying them special attention in its current activities.
Throughout the year, the City offers an array of cultural activities and events to suit all tastes and ages. A variety of musical shows and concerts, youth activities, and theme-based and improvisational events are presented as part of the Rendez-vous culturels at the multi-purpose centre. You can consult the detailed program in the Calendar section.
In addition to serving as a venue for the City’s cultural events, the multi-purpose centre can be rented for private functions. For more information, visit the Multi-purpose centre section.
Activities move outdoors in the summertime, with Les Mardis en famille and Les Jeudis de la place held at the Village Square and Mercille Park. A variety of high-calibre shows, concerts, and outdoor films ensure that there’s something for every taste.
For greater comfort, we suggest that you bring along your own chair for these activities. In the event of rain or changeable weather, they move inside the multi-purpose centre. All these activities are free, but the City asks those attending to donate non-perishable foodstuffs for food banks that help the underprivileged.
